When we booked L’Abri for one night we never expected to find such an amazing, fabulous place. L’Abri and its owner, Jane, set the standards for how a proper B&B should be.
Jane made us feel completely at home from the first moment. At the entrance of the house a blackboard welcomed us with our names on and Jane offered us a glass of homemade lemonade as it was a hot day.
Then, once you enter the room the amazing view leaves you breathless. The garden, the fresh flowers in the room, the home baked cookies, the cleanliness, the wonderful paintings. Jane’s immaculate attention to detail is impressive from the spotlessly clean carpet to the 3-layer curtain.
Having breakfast at L’Abri two senses compete with each other, vision and taste! Vision, cause the view from the living room is fantastic and the presentation of the breakfast is superb and taste cause Jane is a great cook. Fresh fruit salad, freshly baked croissants, and incredible eggs (baked eggs with spinach and bacon and French omelette) directly from her hens made breakfast unforgettable.
We are incredibly happy that we stayed even for one night at L’Abri and met with Jane. It was an exquisite experience and we strongly recommend it!!
